About the Author

Stuart M. Rankin grew up in Amherst, MA, with a librarian aunt who was friends with Robert Frost. He holds fond memories of Frost attending his local library and reading for a spell, and perhaps sparked the wild imagination Rankin holds to this day.

As an adult, Rankin graduated from Ohio State University in 1961. He taught history and geography at Hyde Park High School in Chicago. Two years later he was recruited into advertising and worked for Leo Burnett Co., the New York Times Division, and Jesse Owens and Associates. He later owned his own advertising agency for ten years, servicing clients Reebok Int., Anheuser-Busch, KFC, Ameritech, and more.

Now retired, Rankin began writing children's books as a hobby and as a way to reach children with meaningful messages; he also enjoys playing golf and tennis in his spare time.

He and his wife of sixty-two years have one son and a fine daughter-in-law and two wonderful grandchildren. Jesse Owens was his father-in-law and business partner for eight years until his passing.
